New construction of a three-story worship facility totaling 118,500 square feet. The facility includes a new sanctuary which seats over 3,000 and functional spaces such as education space, fellowship hall and administrative space. The exterior is comprised of multicolored masonry with intricate design work laid into the masonry and curtain wall glass systems. Glass walls extend eight feet high on two sides of the building and contain metal mullions which portray religious symbols visible both from the exterior of the building as well as inside the sanctuary space. The multi-level, barrel vault ceiling not only provides a visual enhancement to the semicircular space, but also incorporates the catwalk which allows for theatrical and production lighting and sound components. The facility also boasts a large fellowship hall which can be sectioned off into smaller components by movable partitions and is supported by a full service kitchen.
